“The Rockhead Polka”
In 1997, I editorialized this subject. That was the year scientists allegedly found an “alien rock” from the planet Mars. That same year President Clinton injured his knee and had to dance around with crutches. Give your attention to the last paragraph, which reveals my prediction, and then read carefully the Endnote.
That Strange-Looking Rock!
“If you’ve been staying abreast with the news, you’ve already heard that scientists, a few months ago, allegedly ‘discovered’ a rock in Antarctica they claimed to be from Mars. These ‘rockhead’ scientists are even dancing ‘The Rockhead Polka’ because they have found ‘fossilized bacteria’ on and inside of this ‘outer space rock.’ I suspect before long these same ‘scientists’ will be preparing themselves to be beamed up into a spacecraft which carries on its belly the letters ‘UFO.’
NASA Manipulated Our “Great Leader” & His Aides
“NASA used this bit of celestial information to convince the Federal Government to continue shelling out billions of dollars into its faltering coffers. The oddity of this whole plot is that these Rockhead Polka scientists were able to convince our President and his liberal Cabinet that the rock actually originated from Mars. So our ‘Great Leader’ is now dancing the ‘Rockhead Polka,’ even with his bum knee.
Duped, Duped, & Double Duped
“Why are people so gullible to messages that are melodramatic? Doesn’t it sound strange that of all the trillions of little rocks scattered all over our planet, scientists were able to find only
one among them that came from Mars? How lucky can you get? And why Antarctica? Why not Iowa or Montana? Well, how many people go to Antarctica? It’s science fiction, dear readers, pure science fiction. And you can bet your bottom dollar the scientists who made this ‘discovery’ are hard-boiled evolutionists and humanists. I predict that before long a few reputable scientists will refute this ‘celestial’ claim.”
My prediction came true some months after the above article was published, according to Dan Rather of CBS Evening News. Apparently, the rock turned out to be from Earth, not from outer space. A few reputable scientists and their research toppled the fairy tale dispatch. The lesson? Careful that we’re not hoodwinked and brainwashed by dispatches of an alien kind, whether earthly or cultic in nature.
Yet Another Strange Phenomenon
And now, 2008, scientists have found evidence of water on Mars! Here is another prediction: The day will arrive when this claim will go down in history as just another bogus announcement.
There is zero evidence, now or in the past, that atmospheric conditions on and around Mars are or was capable of producing water. These scientists need to cease chasing yesterday and the things that are not there.
